I feel like such a failure

Donald Crankshaw got an 87; all I got was a 68:
I am nerdier than 68% of all people. Are you nerdier? Click here to find out!
I note that this test is a bit too temporal; if I'd taken it five years ago when I was working on my own homebuild Linux system, browsing with Konquorer, and using ssh frequently, I would have scored a lot higher. A better test would concentrate on tendencies rather than mere contingent circumstances. Also, I suspect the fact that I neither know nor care what my GPA was counted against me which is unfair because some nerds (like me, for example) think of themselves as so much smarter than everyone else that it isn't worth competing.
